Three Birmingham restaurants receive honors
As part of the Detroit Free Press Restaurant of the Year program, the Free Press asked readers to nominate restaurants for the “Classic Award.” The Classic Award is presented periodically, and honors an eatery that’s been around for a decade or longer and remained relevant while also shaping patrons’ food memories. According to the Free Press, their editors sifted through hundreds of stories submitted by readers and Birmingham’s Tallulah Wine Bar and Bistro garnered the title. Free Press readers described the owners as engaged, caring and committed to the community. Regarding the Tallulah’s staff, readers wrote, “amazing,” providing “exceptional service.” And readers described the food, as “Great.” and “Phenomenal.” Another local publication, Hour Magazine, also selected a Birmingham eatery to honor. Hour deemed Madame as its 2023 Restaurant of the Year. The magazine noted that “The flagship restaurant of Daxton Hotel brings to Birmingham a level of fine dining that caters to the jet-setting traveler and local foodie alike.” The Townsend Hotel has received international honors from Forbes Travel Guide. The Townsend Hotel earned a new Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star rating and The Townsend’s Rugby Grille Restaurant received a Forbes “Recommended Restaurant” award. The Rugby Grille was the only restaurant in Michigan to receive this award.
